LIFE’S STRUGGLE


 

Everyone who breathes the breath of life enters into the struggle to become something worthwhile. Some are successful while others apparently lose the battle. Key to success is geared to the effort put forth. A famous lady restated words her father oft repeated;

“Watch your thoughts for they become words.

Watch your words for they become actions.

Watch your actions for they become habits.

Watch your habits for they become your character.

And watch your character for it becomes your destiny.

What we think, we become.

My father always said that... and I think I am fine.”

― Margaret Thatcher

The ten rules for life found in the bible are guidelines to keep one on the right track for a life of righteousness. This innate desire for being a person who prospers in every phase of their life is inborn and tries to lead us a rightly until impugned by outside forces. This inner voice tries to keep us on the straight and narrow but so often is squelched and overruled. The result is finally the voice becomes so weak it can hardly be heard. If one could be so bold as to take a pad and pen and record each and every time they over ruled that inner voice during the week it might be a revelation as to who they have become.

The standard the inner voice sets is high indeed but we have the tendency to measure ourselves by the present world standard and by what it allows and satisfactorily measure ourselves by it.

Galatians 6:4 Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won't need to compare yourself to anyone else.

Do you need to make some changes? You decide! A place to start is by asking yourself; “How do I treat other people”. Do I respect them enough to place value on who they are? Finally do I care enough one way or the other to make improvement in my area of weakness?
